They have a large string of horses that are beautiful and healthy looking. You can tell that they take good care of their horses. The stable area is clean and the staff is friendly. We had to cancel our trip at the last minute because of rain, and when I called, they were accommodating and quickly fit us into their schedule for the next day. Everyone I spoke with either on the phone or in person was pleasant and out going.
Our guide was Miss Audrey, and she was as sweet as can be. She and I spent the entire time talking and she went out of her way to be sure that all of us were comfortable with our horses. Along the trail we came upon a large turtle in our path, and Audrey carefully picked him up and relocated him before we continued on.
I could honestly spend half the day riding the trails here. We had a fantastic time out in the open air, with horses that were well behaved and easy to manage.
I'd like to thank Miss Audrey for being such a pleasant young lady. She was cheerful and entertaining and I could tell how much she loves her job and the horses. She is a real asset to Rocking U. Thanks again Audrey!
